Jacob can't handle it. He begs me to change the channel and, like the evil mother I am, I absolutely refuse. As we watch, one of us regularly yells out this phrase:
"Ack! Secondhand embarrassment!"
Like when Angela thought Jordan was singing a song about her - I call her Red -- but he was actually singing about his car. Ouch.
And as I watch I wonder...how old is too old to think Jordan Catalano is completely hot?
In addition to torturing my son with the awkwardness of Angela Chase's love life, I've realized that I now completely relate to the parents in the show.
No matter how old I feel, I will not change the channel.
So the lesson here is that middle age is only tolerable if you use your power to torment the young.
